They’re great for busy weeknights, casual dinners, or even as a snack during game day. Plus, this recipe is a fantastic way to reduce food waste and get the most out of your leftovers.

How to Serve

Serve the Taco Tortilla Pizzas hot, right out of the oven, with a side of sour cream, guacamole, and a fresh salsa for dipping. They’re best enjoyed immediately while the tortilla crusts are crispy and the cheese is melted and gooey.

How to Store

If you have leftover tortilla pizzas, they can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Reheat in the oven or toaster oven at 375°F until the cheese is bubbly and the crust is crisp again.


  • Brushing the tortillas with olive oil before baking helps achieve a crispier crust.
  • Preheat the oven with a baking stone or sheet inside to ensure a quick and even crisping of the tortillas.
  • Be creative with your toppings based on what you have available. Anything that goes well in a taco will taste great on these tortilla pizzas.
